Event details

Join the School's Adam Stevens in his show at the Edinburgh Fringe festival!

From the science of sterilising spacecraft to the evolution of big flappy mouths, University of Edinburgh astrobiologist Dr Adam Stevens will lead you on a tour of what we know about life in the universe. By examining life on Earth, we can start to answer a myriad of questions: Is there life elsewhere? What does it look like? If it exists, is it coming to try and eat our faces off? And what if human beings are more dangerous to the rest of the universe than the universe is to us?

Tickets cost £9 (£7 concessions) and can be bought via Fringe sales outlets and the link below. This event is part of the Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas 2017.
